What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed

September 29, 2017

So, you’re buying a new furnace. It may be a significant investment, but an efficient, well-running furnace is vital to your comfort. A furnace installation is a big job, and you can presume it to take a few hours. To help make the process go as quickly and smoothly as possible, there are some things you can do to get ready. That way, you’ll be back to cozy comfort in no time.

It’s very common for a furnace room to serve as a storage room. So, if there is items near your furnace or in its path, move it a safe distance away for the installation. Don’t forget that the Rescue Heating & Air technicians will need plenty of room by the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will allow them space and will help guard your belongings from being damaged. You can be confident that our professionals will take extra care to keep your space clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also wise to move any furniture located in the path to the furnace room.

You should be aware that you might need a new thermostat, depending on the model of your former furnace. Plus, now may be the perfect time to upgrade to a smart thermostat to take full advantage of all the benefits of a new furnace. A smart thermostat can help maintain peak comfort and keep your home at your desired temperatures 24/7. If you need or would like a new thermostat installed during your furnace installation, you may also want to get some touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your original thermostat to clean up your wall.
